Your guide to using pesticides

Using Pesticides is the perfect companion to the Codes of Practice for Using Plant Protection Products. It provides all the key points in one handy place and is extensively cross referenced to the Code to provide easy access to specific details. The booklet also provides useful extra guidance on modes of action, transport regulations, chemical stores, biobeds and LERAPs.

It has been written to help sprayer operators, their managers and supervisors understand the steps to be taken to ensure safe, effective spraying and to help those new to spraying obtain the qualifications they need.
